KFC ~ Bon Chon Etc

Hounds I, my co workers, and friends have discovered and rant and rave over KFC. It is a bit different from your local Popeyes. But having started noshing at the Springfield Va location, then finding one in Rockville MD, and another in Ellicott City the quality and taste varies between them. To my taste Ellicott City hits the spot, as well as the Va location. The Soy Garlic and the Spicy wings rock. While stopping at the Rockville MD location different story. Disney style fare, the hot wings were tourist style no difference from the very mild soy garlic, both with a lot less garlic. That being said, are there other KFC type shops around to check out? I travel between Baltimore and almost Richmond.
Thanks!

From DC to Oahu for a week : June 12-18th

Would like to know a few good happy hour places to end the day.
Some good local chow places where locals can afford to eat.
Good Pho place. Or great food truck, or farm/flea markets
Notable breakfast places, and things not to miss while there chow wise.

Thanks!

Niagara Fall Ontario Chow

Visiting for three days in early April. Need rec's for Fish & Chips, Pho, Sea Food, steaks, etc I know it is a tourist area, but as reasonable as possible and still great chow.

Union Market in NE DC

A. Littieri on Morse St., NE, yep a great place for quite a lot of food stuffs. The rest of Union market, IMHO, mostly a great clean stop for tourist, or those with lots of money. At least until a Whole Foods arrives.

Best Fried Chicken

Worked in Springfield, tried BonChon.
Hell of a wait for it #1.
We had to come back four times just to order.
When we got it there were two camps, loved it, and those that thought it was chewy and way too sweet, not like normal chicken.
Bottom line, IMHO, check it out, and vote with your pocket book.
Hyped, over hyped wings, at crazy prices.

Best Mambo (Mumbo) Sauce

Good post!
I actually remember the sauce from the late 60's, like Half Smokes, Miles Long on Benniing road in NE used to offer it, as well as Wing's N Things at 7th and Florida ave NW. That was before the "Bullet Proof" Chinese places took over. Even in those days, the taste differed from place to place. Wings, Fries, and yep it did set the meal off, and you could smell it and start others craving.

Is your local DC supermarket getting worse?

Always easy to get into, and check out. Great steaks, burgers, and veggies.

Resturant Supply's open to public

Well, for what it is worth, the two I visited are organized like some sort of weird yard sale.
Lots of stuff with local store owners roaming around with skids with mixed cases of this or that. No prices on anything. No organization, or at least none with any logic or consistency. Odds and ends of product lines. Sysco is a bit of a drive, but very well organized. Not as big as either DC place. But they also offer restaurant portioned entry's. Food stuff's are no cheaper than local grocery stores. Matter of fact, cheaper if you look for sales. These places seem to be geared for the various local corner stores Mom/Pop/carry out's.

But they did have the deli containers I needed.
The tops they offered were of a cheaper quality and not the same as the bottoms.
So, next trip up the road next month I will just get Tops.

Thank you! I did go by this place, and another up the same street. both had the same brand.
8Oz and 16 Oz, and there prices were the same brand as Sysco.
Their lids were not the same quality. but nice to know I only have a local source!

Thanks!!!

Take 95 north to you see the exit for Columbia Route 175, go east till you see Route 1.
Turn left at the light, Route 1.
About maybe 1 mile up the road you will see Flea Market. It is in the parking lot to the left of the flea market. Close Sundays.
